Sheehan Looks for Strong Autumn Finish at VIR
October 6, 2022
Bow, NEW HAMPSHIRE – October 6, 2022 - Having finished in P8 at the popular venue in 2019 and notched his 100th start in Trans Am in 2020 when he finished in P7 in the Heacock Gold Cup, New Hampshire's Tom Sheehan has good memories of Virginia International Raceway. 2022 has so far been less kind to the evergreen "Ironman" of muscle car racing and a mechanical issue late in the race at Watkins Glen cost him several places and typified Tom's luck this season. Nevertheless, Tom remains in upbeat mood, with the canary yellow No. 97 LTK Insulation Technologies Damon Racing Ford Mustang heading to Virginia.
VIR is a hugely popular track and originally opened in 1957 as one of the country’s first permanent road racing circuits. The 3.27-mile track has unusually remained exactly the same ever since. While the track is unchanged, the grounds at VIR have gone through quite a transformation since their humble beginnings. The VIR we know today began to take shape when new owners had a vision of something altogether more grand. After several fallow years, they reopened VIRginia International Raceway in 2000 with world-class facilities and resort amenities. Since then, VIR has received international acclaim and tremendous reviews as one of the most exciting road courses in all of North America and is usually a very popular resort.
